Well i’m new to opensuse and i’m liking it so far. I was trying to figure out how to play avi,mp4’s and dvd’s. I have accomplished to get an avi working in totem but not in banshee or mplayer or kaffeine. I can’t seem to get the mp4 player playing or a dvd. All media players come up with an error, whether for a missing codec or no video out.
Like i said i’m new, so if anyone can gently shine some light I’d appreciate it =)
Hello taderazio, welcome to the forum.
You didn’t mention if you have installed the Restricted formats - openSUSE yet. Please do so if you haven’t already and then let us know if it solves your problem or not.
I followed your guide, dvd an mp4 and avi played in vlc… I get errors with programs like totem don’t know if that is normal or not for it only to work in Vlc. But I am also wondering the easiest way to Rip dvd’s. and if there boxee is available for opensuse.
I agree with you about Totem, it’s a dead piece of software. Why doesn’t he use kaffeine or Smplayer. The KDE3 Version of kaffeine is the best thing that Linux has for DVD playback. VLC and SMPlayer are very good too.
